Sequester Need Here!!

Too bad that the Republicans are going to go supine on budget matters (again) because I think the FTC needs a 10% budget haircut.

...Every month, it seems, brings a new story of this presidency leveling the intimidating powers of the federal government against some law-abiding citizen. Now comes a terrifying tale of how the Federal Trade Commission, a governmental Goliath, crushes an average David—because it can.

The victim-du-jour?  A toothless 501(c)(3) trade association for piano teachers.  Yup.  You read it right. Bet you never thought those piano teachers were really a bunch of colluding price-fixing thugs, eh?

They're not.  But it cost them, anyway.
